Rebekah White

Word Worship Team's picture

Rebekah White is a worshiper with an unyielding passion for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Born in Louisville, Kentucky where her father was a minister of music, Rebekah had the opportunity to hone her gifting as a pianist and vocalist from an early age within the church walls.

Songwriting became a passion from a young age as well. By 15, White had written over 100 songs. Her love for all things music brought about an opportunity for a job on tour with Green Day in 2004. This was the beginning of a path that took her music outside of the church walls. Through that initial opportunity, White has been able to work alongside several notable pop artists such as Justin Timberlake, Fergie, and Natasha Bedingfield. This season also helped her to catch the attention of Mike Scott (world renowned guitarist for Prince and Justin Timberlake) and Printz Board (Black Eyed Peas) and ultimately helped launch her solo artist career.

White signed her first pop recording artist deal in 2007 with Beets & Produce, founded by Printz Board. Since, she has performed in some of L.A.’s most renowned music venues, including Hotel Café and The Whisky A-Go-Go, sharing the stage with Fergie, Anna Nalick, and more. She continued to hone in her craft and studied voice under Kim Wood-Sandusky (Beyonce’ Knowles, Rebecca St. James, Kelly Rowland).
With the arrival of her son (now six year old), White stepped away from her pop music career to focus on her passion of songwriting. In 2012, she signed a publishing deal with Michael Blanton (Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith) of BE Music & Entertainment.

White currently has over 40 songs circulating on TV where they are being played by multiple stations including E entertainment, the Ellen Show, and TMZ, co-written with Peter Amato (producer on The Voice). She also co-wrote "Music Feels Better" by artist Alexa Aronson, featuring Snoop Dog with multi platinum producer, Bryan Todd. The song hit #1 the first week on the Dance Breakout charts, and it remained on the Billboard Dance charts for multiple weeks.

Despite her pop music influence and continued success, Christian music has always been White’s primary passion. Over the years, White has served on worship teams at Angeles Temple (Los Angeles, CA), HROCK Church (Pasadena, CA), and for special events at many other houses of worship. She was also a regular worship leader at The Well Christian Fellowship (Simi Valley, CA) from 2012-2015, which is when she felt the Lord call her from Los Angeles, CA to Nashville, TN. White independently released her first worship EP, “Bold Love” on February 14, 2016.

Signing with Curb|Word Music Publishing in 2018 has brought an entirely new level of opportunity for White. Upcoming releases co-written by her since joining the team include “Hide & Seek” by Sanctus Real (featuring Rebekah vocally) and “Magnetic”, releasing later this year through a Bethel Music project.
